Is there a way to onboard without saving states directly to a user's profile?

Yk, onboarding like, “Hide this message later on” and the app being smart enough to save the user’s preference.

You know how other apps pretty much ask you to turn notifs on, or receive comment updates, or even teach you how to use the app. For the app to save it w/o me altering user data. is that even possible?

I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking…

But if you’re asking how to save data without using the database, then maybe local storage (or cookies) it what you’re after?

i think that might be it. i’ll explore cookies

sorry for the trash formatting, i’m currently on the move
